Morrison Government to bust congestion in Balcatta, Osborne Park & Hamersley Featured Image

Residents living in Balcatta, Osborne Park and Hamersley will enjoy improved and safer road conditions thanks to a $6 million announcement from the Morrison Government to upgrade local intersections.

Then Liberal Candidate for Stirling, Vince Connelly, announced during the election that a re-elected Morrison Government will invest $6 million to upgrade three local intersections – at Wanneroo Road and Morley Drive in Balcatta, at Main Street and Hutton Street in Osborne Park, and at Erindale Road and Reid Highway in Hamersley.

“These critical investments will fix some notorious bottlenecks and enhance road safety, meaning residents will spend less time in traffic and more time at home with their families,” Mr Connelly said.

“This announcement builds on the record investment we have already been able to deliver for our community, including widening the Mitchell Freeway and our commitment to extending Stephenson Avenue.

“The Morrison Government’s strong economic management means these critical projects can be delivered while bringing the Budget back into surplus.”

“The benefits of this type of infrastructure cannot be understated, which is why I am proud to be able to make these latest commitments for our local community – ensuring that we are investing in congestion-busting road projects will remain a key priority for me.”

Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population, Alan Tudge, said only the Morrison Government would get people home sooner and safer.

“We are investing in infrastructure for motorists that will make a real difference to safety and travel times,” Mr Tudge said.

“This is part of our more than $13 billion investment in road and rail projects across Western Australia.”
